Definitely a stiff carving board. I rode one for about 3 years thinking I wanted a stiff freeride board... which was not the case. It is a narrow board, with my 166 having a slimmer waist at 25.2...

X2 156 is way to long. People on here, myself included, are happy riding upper 150s for all mountain stuff.

So I changed my flight going to Denver, now arriving this Thursday. Big Sky is set to get 13 to 25 inches the next day and a half. Too good to pass up and totally worth the flight change charge.
